worse every single day across our country because every day of the year an average of 33 americans are murdered with guns. here is another way to think about what that means. one week from today, president obama will take the oath of office for his second term, and unless we take action during those four years, some 48,000 americans will be killed with guns, nearly twice as many people as were killed in combat the during the entire vietnam war. i've made it a very clear that our bipartisan coalition of mayors is supporting seven measures country that need for legislation and for that require only executive action. we are hopeful the president and vice president and i want to talk to you on each of them briefly. first and most urgent, we need the president and congress together to require a background check for all gun sales including a private sales at gun shows and online. these private sales now account for more than 40% of all gun sales nationally, which means that in 2012 alone, there were more than 6 million gun sales that happened with no background checks. many of them being

similar acts of terror in oakland and tucson and virginia tech, all across our country. we see the loss of life everyday all across this nation. after the unthinkable in newtown, president obama spoke about if we are doing enough to protect our children. the answer, he admitted, is no. that must change. that is why we are here today. we will hear from people who deal with the effects of gun violence every day. a wide range of experience and expertise when we will facilitate a discussion on it, then step the we must take to ensure that these tragedies will never happen again. i have a letter from the teachers of newtown, which i will enter into the record. but i will share one sentence. it says in our schools we need to strike the right balance to ensure that schools are nurturing while also say. safe. and we need to strike the right balance what the schools do not become in a place where they cannot be kids. we need to find and maintain this balance between safety and learning. as we move forward during this difficult time, collaboration, communication, value and the voice of exper

obama administration quietly behind the scenes a common cause in the country that don't want to see that being demanded. the american system did muted, but it goes beyond a sort of suffering a certain amount of problems and i don't think often some people attacked it often helps and the analysis recently or couple of months ago the language used by chavez to attack the oas and they are strikingly similar. as you can imagine. so, you know, in one case the oas is an instrument of the leftists but i do think you're right. they have not engaged in number of human rights issues. if we wanted to engage the embargo to engage the process of change that's already going out in cuba and devotee that easy left. the problem was they got a little gun shy because of the loss of political capital and the years of the bush administration some people in the administration tried to politicize the human rights questions and i think that the mantra became wendi obama administration came in we cannot publicize them or get in the middle of it but i think they had gone too far and it's not just in venezuel

at the individual and the family. obama's second inaugural address coming up soon would be a good time for him to rely on the country that the government is dependent on the people, not the other way around. we also need more clarity and discussion from all of the leaders about the importance of family despite the widespread acceptance that children do better with two-parent married households despite what we know about the instability in financial hardships caused by single parents trying to raise children on their own and despite statistics about the worst educational attainment, greater criminal justice and a great welfare usage among the single parent families, despite all of that our leaders, our universities, our media and religious institutions and the leaders of the groups where the problem of single parenthood is the most severe both of the african-american and hispanic community refused to take this issue on the aggressively or deal with in any meaningful way. this problem is particularly glaring in the reporting of most of our media, which to it sometimes credit devotes
